My assumption is that it's a combination of the following arguments: Shutting down is a relatively uncommon action (for dealing with your example about getting undesired calls, the do not disturb feature and airplane mode are much more convenient). There are sometimes issues identifying the intend of the user based on voice input. It would be very ...

Normally when users submit something they expect a response, and they expect this response to match their inquiry. When users submit their order they expect to be told whether it was submitted successfully or not, not taken back to the menu. If you think of the process analogous to a real food order how would you feel if the clerk took your payment and then ...

No. This will potentially lead to annoyed users who start spam clicking on buttons, which defeats the purpose of having a confirmation step in the first place. When should you use modal? When you're dealing with uncommon one-off actions with potentially serious consequences (e.g. irreversible delete of multiple records). The modal gives you room to explain ...

Great question, really! The problem does not lie in Yes or No. But if the action is Positive or Negative. For example, "Are you sure to permanently delete System32?" Yes No "Are you sure you want to backup this photo?" Yes No As you can see here, the principle of good design is violated. If you specify Yes or No in the UI of your website/app, ...

It's not recommendable to use the word Cancel in pop-up/alert boxes. You could use another wording like close or quit. You have several good combinations for the buttons, here is just one (for example, you could change Cancel for "No, stay"): download bmml source – Wireframes created with Balsamiq Mockups In the case you decide to use it, you ...

1) Unfortunately, I do not have data on conversion loss for that. 2) It depends of the importance of what you enter your email for. Having to type your email twice is not a good UX. Plus, many people will simply copy-paste the first email field into the second, making the "confirm email" field rather useless. 3) My recommendation would to NOT put a second ...

It looks like the area code mismatch is NOT an error which should halt and prevent the user from saving. I would propose you change the flow a little (see below) Changes: Allow the user save if area code does not match the state. Show a notification (not an error) under field(s) in question. Such approach will not force the user to save twice and ...

Reducing the number of fields on a form typically increases conversions, however you can go too far sometimes. A user will have an expected number of fields for task, if you are asking for just an e-mail address when an user expects name, email and password. They might not be sure it's the correct form or as Zanon mentions might think it is a scam. Also as ...

As you have already asked about the security concerns at security.stackexchange.com, I can give my opinion about the UX perspective: Do you know any service where you register and it requires only a valid e-mail prior to filling your username/password/other data? I've never seen something like this. If you don't run a popular website, a few people ...

You could use wordings that describe where the user will land after clicking the buttons, rather than their relations to the immediate action (which creates this paradox you highlighted): Go/Return to Login/Front page Continue Sign-Up

You may want to keep the same size for the following two reasons : Different sizes creates contrast, that creates visual clutter. Placing same size buttons around a virtual vertical axis creates symmetry, which is regarded as more pleasing, formal and stable. But, if you have more important design goals, i.e. attract user attention, space limitations ...

the anwser will depend on your context. In a lot of guidelines, they advice to put a verb or very short sentence (Verb + subject) in confirmation box button. Would you like to send an email instead of print to save paper? Send Email Take a print I advice to read this : ...

Cancel and Confirm as just two choices at the end of a scenario which from a user's perspective have equal importance. If you make one of the two buttons more visible (either by using size or color) then you are influencing his decision. Some times you actually want to influence user's decision but others you don't. If you intend to influence his decision ...

Ill go as far as saying: dont confirm the cancellation of the sign up. but on the login screen afterwards, provide a "no worries, continue signup where you left off"

The UX title is the mostly abused nowadays, with any web developer or designer that can draft up a wireframe in Balsamiq/Axure/UXPin etc. labeling themselves UX experts... So one would assume a UX Designer is former Graphic Designers that can make wireframes and pretty mockups. A UX Developer is most likely someone with more HTML/CSS and possible other ...

if deleting multiple objects You could provide a way to select multiple elements (checkbox) and a button to delete the selected rows (with a popup if the number of deleted rows is big enough). This way, you need 2 (spacially separated) clicks to delete one item, but only n+1 click to delete n items (or n+2 if you add a popup). There is a secondary ...

You should let user delete or edit without confirmation, which increase friction. Instead of confirmation, you should implement an undo action. Have a look on this example in Rails.

Confirmation in your case is necessary since else, it would become an easy way to spam emails to a list of emails with a bot without needing confirmation. Since the process of reminders can be automated after a single 3rd party API login and iterated with an array of emails, it will become very easy to exploit such a service and send reminder emails to ...

Just change the text of the button to 'Add Another' or 'Add More' to indicate user has already bought this item and he can add more such items if he prefers. I think ebay or amazon has this type of shopping cart.

If you try entering an invalid email address in Google contacts, and press Back, it gets saved without validation. This is bad UX. Also, the Back button itself has a lot of ambiguity when it comes to navigation and form submission. http://www.androiduipatterns.com/2011/12/back-button-androids-achilles-heel.html ...
